More proof that the “soft sciences” are all “soft” and no “science”.

Heh. It fits the field. “...technolog.” That makes it even funnier from a real technological point of view.

As I’ve written before, cats get a bad rap on the Internet, frequently stereotyped as LOL ignoramuses, forever shredding grammar like a half-dead mouse in what the World Wide Web would have us believe is their endless quest for "cheezburgers."

Oh, c'mon! No one said that cats are dumb. They just talk funny.

But the cat totally ignores you if you don’t have food. Some therapist.

I would think that dogs would make better shrinks. They’re always in a good mood, they’re always glad to see you, and they listen with both eyes and both ears.

Interesting how the comments under this article devolved into a ‘global warming debate’ in no time flat...geez.

Given the usefulness of some of the mental health professionals out there the cat might do a better job anyway.

For whatever reason I don’t seem to see many shorthair dilutes, only huge fuzzy beasts. She’s gorgeous!
